Raspberry Pi Lego car

Hello all,

I'm making my first robot using Raspberry Pi. My robot looks like a car with three wheels. Two of them are in front and have connection to motors, The third one is behind and it's no connection to motors.

I'm planning to use 2 simple motors (for each front wheel one). For now my robot weight 260g, and i have to add two motors and battery and i little of more constuction for holding motors and battery. I'm already found which type of motor should i use:

Motraxx MOTOR X-FLY 400 or Moteaxx MOTOR X-FLY 280.

My first robot project. I realized my Raspberry Pi had been collecting dust in a drawer, for some time. I started thinking about suitable projects, and stumbled … Read more

Hi there,

I have a quesiton to those of you who are familiar with Lego Mindstorms NXT brick and also C#

Lego mindstorms books to go.[gone]

Ok, I've got these two books about Lego mindstorms as a prize for my LadyBugBot winning the RobotBox online competition lying around for a long time. Now, as I dig them out, I definitely know I will not be reading them for a long time... So, they are looking for a new owner, who is interested in Lego NXT. The books are:

The Lego Monster Chess Project

I saw this video on Youtube and it let me speechless... I know who is the mastermind behind the project and after I visited his website I found out I know several other members as well.

Haven't touched the dusted Mindstorm NXT at corner for long time I decide to combine it with lots of parts salvage from friends for 4 leg walker. The leg idea … Read more

The Lego Great Ball Contraption

Robotics people sometimes are asked to be a Robot Show presenter. They look for ideas of what might get people interested in robotics. Here is an idea of a great show built using Lego robots and other contraptions, called the Cooperative Cybernetic Crate Contraption, by the SMART group, but one can be inventive and build something similar, probably less spectacular, using regular robots and contraptions.

Let's face it, I've been a total slacker when it comes to building robots (I can hear the distant voice of fritsl mumbling something about never finishing my robot … Read more
